Monday: Song - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L3jEoR5WXS0Skip counting in 2

Year 1 – Division - Children explore sharing as a model of division. They use 1:1 correspondence to share concrete objects into equal groups. Children also need to be given the opportunity to see when a number of objects cannot be shared equally into equal groups. Children will be introduced to the ‘÷’ symbol. They will begin to see the link between division and multiplication.

Collect 20 small objects (pasta shapes, marbles or pegs etc). Use hoops/bowls to represent your friends.

Can you share the objects between 5 friends? 20 shared between 5 equals?

Can you share the objects between 2 friends? 20 shared between 2 equals?

Can you share the cubes between 10 friends? 20 shared between 10 equals?

Can you share the cubes between 4 friends? 20 shared between 4 equals?
